The Lyrics

I've contemplated this idea for a while... but trying to make it funny AND hopeful was what took me so long to transfer it to my computer screen.
When I was taken, I looked but didn’t touch
I remained faithful
But now that I’m single and such
I’ll get a lasso so I can pull

In any single men I find reasonably attractive
And I promised myself to let the
Guy be proactive and
Pursue me as long as

He doesn’t

Want a, a reckless distraction
Want a, a reckless distraction
Want a, a reckless distraction
Want a, a reckless distraction

Maybe I know someday that I will find
Me a decent man
Someone who won’t whine and will have an open mind
And doesn’t get banned

From simple events and things
Just ‘cause he acted obnoxious
After my last breakup I've sworn to myself that I would not be someone’s fling
‘Cause my biological clock is ticking

I don’t want a reckless distraction
Don’t want a reckless distraction
Don’t want a reckless distraction
Don’t want a reckless distraction

I’ve got high standards and expectations, but I can’t
Seem to find a man who’s not a pig
The last man I spoke with told me I need breast implants
If I see him again I’ll rent a drilling rig

I’m not a reckless distraction
I’m not a reckless distraction
I’m not a reckless distraction
I’m not a reckless distraction

Don’t need a reckless distraction
Don’t need a reckless distraction
Don’t need a reckless distraction
Don’t need a reckless distraction

If I fail there’s always spinsterhood
Oh, if I fail there’s always spinsterhood
This parody is loosely based on my own experiences with men, like some of my other love-related parodies you can read on my author page (and/or listen to on my YouTube)... yet, unlike many (or perhaps all) my other love-related parodies, this one hints at my hope that I can find someone decent before I'm officially rendered a spinster.
